What's wrong with hardman?
I agree best full back in our league for me by miles. But on the Briggs being full back I wouldn't see why not if hardman got injured etc. but hardman definatley got to be 1st full back for me he's a SL full back for me.Also for me if we can get Briggs back to his best get him back at stand off he would rip this league up if we can get him back to his scintillating best.

Briggs at full back Im not sure of, I'd much rather see him defending in the line than defending against a break.

Also the guy has a voice and speaks good english - he may not wish and stated that he does not want to play there also or he perhaps might have developed his game to play in that role
Its not like we ever see him dashing back to cover if Hardman is out of posistion, can you say you have seen him ever do that?

Hypothetically speaking though, why not? I guess he'd have to do a bit of work to get himself correct positionally on attack and defence, and we'd have to see him under the high ball, but I think he'd be good enough.
Perhaps his distribution and tactical kicking skills would be less noticeable at fullback rather than 2nd receiver. I don't know.
Kyle's 24. Steadman was older than that when he switched and he was GB full-back for a while.

Kyle could have played full-back in the days of Jackie Fennell, but not today. A major requirement of a modern day full-back is pace. While Kyle is no slouch he is not the fastest around, but he has other attributes that wouldn't be used in that position, such as his passing, cover tackling, tactical kicking, and strength near the line.
is jonny hepworth blessed with pace. sometimes it's speed of thought that counts.
